Thanks to Mag and Vivian from Aveda Singapore, now I know where I can look for my stress-fix!
It was really a pleasant surprise upon looking for Aveda store in Tangs Orchards. It's located kinda near the entrance of the shopping mall and yes, the first thing that really caught my eye was the interior of the Aveda store.
Welcome to Narnia~!
This is the 100 years old door which might lead you to Narnia! haha~
Looks like as if you are in a botanical excursion eh?
I know Turmeric is really good for the skin and even the well-being!
I didn't know about this but it does have super rich nutrients and protein which is beneficial for hair!
Of course, Lavender the popular relaxing "antidote" for all ages!
And did I mention they do have really nice awesome free stress-fix ritual in store?
Be warned! You will feel so much pampered after stepping in to Aveda outlets and you could get stuck there and never leave! :)
Debra and Me!
Drinking the Aveda's comforting tea! Indeed, It's so comforting and it does refreshes me!
Sweet treats from Vivian and her team !
This is a very responsible way of caring and giving back to the society.
Check out how do they contribute to the society below... so scroll on... :)
Aveda became the first beauty company in the world to manufacture with
100% wind power in 2006!
I only heard of solar power, not wind power, which is a really smart and innovative way of using the natural environment resources! COOL!
Aveda also pioneered Aveda Caps Recycling!
Majority of plastic bottle caps aren't recycled and usually end up in landfills or rivers and oceans. Aveda will collect these caps at their Aveda locations, washed them, ground up and formed into pellets that are molded into new caps—caps used on Aveda products like the Clove Shampoo.
Even the Aveda bottles are bio-degradable as well!
This is definitely one way of giving back to the environment!
Care Throughout the Lifecycle
Soil=> Process=> Transport, Manufacture and Package=> Retail=>We use=> Goes to drain and sea=> back to Soil
This process is so safe even if it's back to the river where we use it to drink or for daily use.
Aveda uses natural ingredients:

2012 marks Aveda's five-year anniversary of buying paper from Nepal for their gift sets—which has made a huge difference to families there. With income from papermaking, they can buy food and clothing, repair their homes, send their children to school and save for the future. Protecting forestland also fights climate change.
All of the below gift sets are actually made with handmade papers from Nepal!
Be sure to check out their range of eco-friendly yet awesome products from the X'mas gift sets!

They even have the New Chakra Balancing massage oils that really do wonders! Just by smelling it will reduce stress and relieves your nerves. Imagine massaging the oils on your body? It's gonna make you feel so relax and stress free!
One of the oil which I tried on the spot and I fell for it! This has Blue Chamomile in it which helps to calm the nerves and this really makes me feel so light!
It's so hot-selling that I wanted to get it on the spot but was already sold-out!
:( Loves it!
Some might be wondering how does Aveda creates their color dyes which is using natural ingredients yet the colours are so vibrant right?
Aveda uses ingredients such as lavender to get the colours and its not harmful to our hair! How great!
